derek Always excited to hear a new recording from loess. Looking forward to the vinyl! Favorite track: bentalls.

Azolla23 Probably one of their most overtly melodic albums (don't get me wrong I love them all) and a really nice direction for their sound style. Still unique as hell and holding the torch. Favorite track: bentalls.

Nick Inhofe this has been on constant rotation since I got it in the mail. The tunes are slow, subtle and have a great mix of ambience and groove. The beats are skittery enough to keep you engaged but don't overwhelm the songs. There is a surprising amount of emotion in these tracks, reminding me of the best stuff coming out of neo ouija back in the day. kudos to loess. Also, n5md has really been nailing it with every release these past few years.
